in the water and the spot where a beachgoer captured this picture of two fins in the shallows. the sheriff's office says there was a sighting that may have been a shark. it may have been something else. right after we headed out on the water with sheriff john ingram. >> we spotted a couple of sharks close to the surf that were about seven foot long. >> reporter: about the approximate size that people think may have attacked the kids yesterday? >> well, it's certainly similar to the size. >> reporter: david, now the sheriff says that the sharks they saw this morning and the sharks they saw after the attack yesterday were probably seven-foot-long bull sharks. now, he says, the men up this those helicopters and in the boats are authorized to shoot them if they see them. david? >> all right, matt gutman in north carolina. matt, thank you. now to a developing headline from l.a.x. airport in los angeles. a flight from fiji landing in l.a. reports of at least 12 passengers sick. the cdc waiting when they touched down. abc's david kerley covers aviation for us.

mexico too. what could become a tropical storm barreling toward the coast. these images out of norman, oklahoma, drenching rains, rescues under way, a dangerous commute home in ann arbor, michigan, and in san antonio, this is interstate 35, cars navigating the floodwaters, and here's the radar at this hour. storms from the south all the way up to the northeast. let's get right to chief meteorologist ginger zee in a moment. but first abc's kendis gibson in galveston where they are bracing for a rough night. >> reporter: david, good evening. take a look, the waves are really starting to whip up here in galveston. emergency managers are really looking at this storm very carefully. their biggest concern flash flooding. you recall texas coming off the wettest month ever in may. storms last month dumping 35 trillion gallons in water on the state leaving behind a $45 million path of destruction. tonight officials in galveston sending out alerts to drivers, look out for flooded roads.
they expect anywhere from 5 inches to a foot of rain in the coming hours. david. >> the churning waters already, kendis, thanks. let's get right to ginger who has the late storm track. >> there are flash flood warnings right now from downtown chicago back to parts of oklahoma, and this is the setup, david. a big high pressure system in the southeast, stifling heat under there but you can see where the moisture is pulling up into louisiana and texas already. what will likely become tropical storm bill will take these paths, this is kind of the computer model showing you where it would go. flash flood watches for much of eastern texas, parts of arkansas and oklahoma, and you can see why. can you see a half foot or more in the coming days in eastern texas. so that's why we're concerned for now. but tonight, it's more of a frontal boundary that's headed anywhere from iowa to western new york. that's where we see flash flood watches. the worst of it will be over tomorrow for the most part. >> a messy night ahead, ginger, thank you. major new developments in that manhunt, the two convicted killers on the run after that daring prison break. the search now entering its tenth day, but after that town in upstate new york was sealed off for a time last week, now officials revealing the convicts
could be as far away as mexico. and tonight that prison employee accused of helping them escape seen here in prison stripes, shackles, a bulletproof vest as she makes her way into court. authorities now revealing what they say was her original plan. here's abc's gio benitez. >> reporter: tonight, joyce tillie mitchell is seeing the jailhouse bars from the other side wearing that black and white jail outfit as she faces a judge, a far cry from the prison tailor shop where she met convicted murderers david sweat and richard matt, who the prosecutor says convinced her to help them break free. >> matt was giving her that friendship, i guess, that she basically groomed her to the point of assisting them in escaping. >> reporter: now prosecutors say sweat and matt planned the escape for five months. mitchell allegedly smuggling in speed bag boxing gloves, lighted eyeglasses and the blades and tools used to bust out. then she was to be the driver of the getaway car. there's the prison right there and right over here, that is the manhole where those two men emerged from.
then prosecutors say the men were supposed to walk just 2 1/2 blocks. that's where mitchell was going to pick them up, right here at this power plant. according to prosecutors, the plan was to drive seven hours to remote woods, only accessible by atvs, but mitchell never showed. instead, checking herself into a hospital complaining of a panic attack. but tonight the key question, where are sweat and matt right now? up until friday, investigators were still searching the prison, which means there's been no confirmed sighting since that escape ten days ago. >> we don't know if they are still in the immediate area or if they are in mexico by now. >> reporter: and here tonight at the county jail, joyce mitchell is behind bars. she just met with her defense attorney moments ago, and, david, he tells us she is distraught. >> gio benitez with us tonight. gio, thank you. and now to the race for 2016, the big new contender tonight, jeb bush, making it official now saying he will run to win, now the 11th republican to get into the race. our abc news/"washington post"

against. >> there's no passing off responsibility when you're a governor, no blending into the legislative crowd. >> reporter: and his concrete promise, 19 million new jobs and a commitment to the middle class. you think america is ready for a third bush? >> i think america is ready for a good candidate, and i think america is ready for a good president. >> and tom llamas with us live now from miami, and, tom, we heard governor bush take direct aim at hillary clinton today. >> reporter: that's right. david, he says as secretary of state hillary clinton was part of a phone-it-in foreign policy and she's left a legacy of crisis all over the world. david. >> tom llamas in florida. meantime, candidate hillary clinton in new hampshire asked if she had any advice for jeb bush who has said his last name doesn't matter. clinton calling that a tempting question but saying she wouldn't answer. this weekend in her campaign kickoff in new york, she did address age and breaking a barrier. >> well, i may not be the youngest candidate in this race,

helicopter buzzes our convoy, but we are on our way to meet a very different kind of army, the religious militias fighting isis. they are shia militias backed by iran, and as we approach this vehicle, we spy a picture of iran's supreme leader right there in the windshield. how hard is this fight? how hard is it to fight against isis? [ speaking a foreign language ] "we will be victorious over the cowardly traitors," he says, "with god's will." you see their enthusiasm. you see their dedication to the fight, and they want no more american soldiers, a lot more american equipment, ammunition and support. but to hear them speak, america is not their friend. if obama sends more american soldiers here, will you fight the americans too? [ speaking a foreign language ] "we will fight isis, and we will fight the americans," this man shouts. as the sun sets, we prepare to meet the official iraqi army the next morning, but as we get close to the front lines --
>> halt. >> move. push on, push on, a couple of shots over our car. >> [ bleep ]. sniper over there. he's coming from left. >> reporter: we hustle inside upstairs ducking low. isis fighters just across these fields. how often are you attacked in this position by the isis fighters? [ speaking a foreign language ] "every day," he tells me. when we sat down with iraqi soldiers at a nearby base, we didn't hear the fierce fervor of those militia fighters. you won't fight isis, but if you hear an american airplane, you will hide. [ speaking a foreign language ] "the pilot will hit me, not isis," he says. they mount up in their humvees made in america. >> thank you. >> reporter: terry moran, abc news, baghdad. >> terry, thank you. back here at home tonight and to the sex abuse scandal in the catholic church, the archbishop of st. paul, minnesota, stepping down tonight. pope francis today accepting the resignation of archbishop john
